Thanks for checking in;

My name is Chuck Frank and I'm the Director of Church Planting and Evangelism for the Eastern Regional Conference of the Churches of God (General Conference) http://www.cggc.org/. Currently, the Eastern Regional Conference is made up of almost 140 churches – extending from Boston, Massachusetts to Manassas, Virginia. About 80% of the ERC’s churches are within 2 hours drive of Harrisburg, Pa.

As Director of Church Planting and Evangelism, I have been called to provide leadership and operational guidance over the ERC’s “2020 Initiative”, which is a bold new church planting movement with a vision to plant 20 resourcing churches by 2020.

You can find out more about God's great vision for the ERC at http://www.2020churchplanting.com/

Just a little bit of background about myself, my wife Tammy and I have been married 25 years and are living in Manheim, Pennsylvania.

Prior to being hired by the Churches of God in July, 2008, I had been working as a church planter for 9 years with the Brethren in Christ denomination - planting 3 congregations in Hagerstown, MD and Lititz, PA.

Some more history: In 2000, I graduated from the Evangelical School of Theology in Myerstown, PA.  Before being called to seminary, I also owned and operated a recording studio business, worked for almost 20 years in the restaurant industry, and was a DJ at a Lancaster radio station. In 1979, I completed my undergraduate work at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, VA, graduating with a B.S. Degree in Communication Arts.

My theme verse is Ephesians 3:20: "Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us . . ."

My life has been radically altered by God's grace. I hope you've discovered his ridiculous love as well! May all of our lives be a testimony to His goodness and love!
